Hi and thanks for visiting my blog. I thought that it would be fun to start an open forum of survival topics and outdoor skills that others can refer to for information and instruction. I will post a survival topic or skill and give some information on it. I will also be posting excerpts from my survival manual that I have been writing. Feel free to comment on it, or ask about a topic that I have not yet covered. Even professionals can learn a new way to do something. In this way we can all help each other. If you have a specific experience that you would like to share please feel free to do so at your own risk of others' comments. If you disagree with someone please be civil and respectful. One last thing, please keep it "G" rated i.e., no foul language or inappropriate subjects. If you break the rules I will pull your post. So let's keep it clean and have some fun!

January Club Meeting

January 24, 2014
Our first club meeting of the year.  We will be meeting at the Pioneer Village in Provo on 600 N and 500 W in the old school house from 1800-2100.  There will be hot chocolate, (eat before you come this time) and we will be talking about ways to communicate in a survival situation (Signals, Morse Code, Trail Markers, Ground to Air Signals, and Ham Radios).  We will hand out information on how to get your Ham License and the best ways to study for the test.

If you are looking for a GREAT little Ham Radio then check this out!  http://www.wildjakes.com/wj/Store.aspx

Go to the Communications link and look at the Baofeng BF-F8+ Radio


  1. Jared thanks for posting a comment. I would like it if you could bring your radio with you. I would also like to make a list of all the Ham call signs in our group. I think that we should include there favorite repeaters that they hang out on.

  2. That was a great meeting Jake. It makes me realize I need to stop being lazy and brush up on my HAM skills. It's an important skill to have for many reasons. That little radio is much more convenient and affordable.
